Sometimes we want to put up a web link or URL that has a huge long address.

A neat way to avoid having to include the whole dang thing is to use Tiny URL.

How to do it:
1. Go to http://tinyurl.com/ .
2. In the Enter a long URL to make tiny: field type or paste in the long URL that you want.
3. Click the Make TinyURL! button.
You will be shown a page with your tiny URL.
4. Simply copy that tiny URL and share it with people.

When they click on the Tiny URL they will go to a web page that will then re-direct them to the original page you wanted to share.

Easy-peasy!
